About this workshop:
Join us for an evening of art and connection as artist Sarah May guides you through creating your own circular mandala weaving with bamboo hoops and learning about the ritual and symbolism of the mandala. No previous weaving experience is needed to participate, only a willingness to try something new, and play around with yarns, fibers, and other found objects. Materials and supplies are included with admission and workshop participants are welcome to bring their own yarn, fibers, and cloth scraps if you feel inspired.

Sarah May (she/hers) is a biracial Salvadoraña artist, weaver, storyteller, and community organizer based out of Salt Lake City, Utah. She creates art and weavings under her artist name Cyanoweave, combining her specialties of cyanotype "sun print photography", and circular mandala and freestyle weaving. Sarah started weaving as a way to connect to her Indigenous ancestry and is inspired by elements and colours in nature when creating her pieces.
